I have some wall decals available at Chispum and they also posted a fun little interview with me today (scroll to the bottom for the English version).

Chris Moose!

Sorry for the major radio silence over here on this blog. It was a very busy summer and the fall has been crazy… I will write more about that later. But I wanted to stop in and share this with you!

I was lucky to illustrate the new Christmas album for Bobs and Lolo. It was so much fun. I love workng with these ladies. They’ve even created a very cute video for the Chris Moose video. Watch at your own risk, it’s very catchy… you won’t be able to stop singing it afterwards!

The fruits of all of my labours are starting to show themselves, and this one is particularly sweet! Working with Bobs and Lolo was like some kind of amazing dream. They are just like you would expect them to be…  kind, sweet and very encouraging. This book is so beautifully written that illustrating it was almost effortless.

You can order it from the store on their website. It’s available now!

Goodnight Book

The Goodnight Book is out!  Published by the fine Simply Read Books. I was so happy to see it in my favourite local bookstore last week.

I’m planning a fun book launch at the Confederation Center Library… we are thinking a PJ party reading would be most suitable. I will post more here when I know more.



summertime self portrait

I just finished this self portrait for the upcoming “I, Defined” Peake St Group show. This is pretty much how I feel all summer. We are one little unit. If I did a self portrait any other time of the year, I probably wouldn’t have my children growing out of my neck.
